Andrew over at is reporting that the Sony VAIO TZ Series is coming to the US in August.

Based on what he’s posted, it’s basically identical to the Sony VAIO TZ90 (available in Japan right now, and available in North America and Europe through third party importers) but it will be called the Sony VAIO TZ100 (don’t you love Sony’s naming conventions).

– Weighs around 2.5 pounds (depending on options)
– Can have 32GB Solid State Drive (SSD) in addition to 160GB regular hard drive (in place of optical drive).
– Can install Operating System on 32GB SSD, to help with battery life and speed.
– Carbon fiber body with four colors: Premium Carbon Fiber, Black, Bordeaux, or Champagne Gold
– LED Backlit LCD display
– “AV Mode” that allows you to play music and movies without booting into Windows.
– Built-in Webcam
– Hinge glows depending on state of laptop (green = on, etc.)
